So What’s Up With Odin’s Thunderbolts?

What’s up with the blog, huh? I know, I’ve been checking regularly like all of you (for the record, you, my imaginary readers, are incredibly attractive and intelligent. I just thought you should know) and there hasn’t been a post this whole month. What gives? Well it would seem that this whole NaNoWriMo has gripped […]

Maus: Move on over Anne Frank (or, When Comics Heighten the Horror of the Holocaust)

Alcohol and the Holocaust do not make good bedfellows. I’m sure you’ve heard that one before, but I can verify from experience that it is really, really true.

Before I started really reading new comics, it never dawned on me that an author could play a central role in the success of a comic book storyline. I’ve briefly touched on this elsewhere, but this is partly due to the fact that, growing up, my enthusiasm for comic book characters was generated entirely from […]

The Spoils of War(ning readers about Comic Book Spoilers)

My brother Matt has an uncanny ability to turn me into a murderous marauder hell-bent on nothing but his ultimate destruction. Most of the time I like little 16-year-old Matt, but nobody – and I mean nobody – can convince me that cold-blooded manslaughter is perfectly acceptable the way he can. He has a whole […]
